Baghdad Blues #9 or “Dreams”
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”
A friend of mine, ZB, mentioned Lawrence in a chat the other day, and it struck me deeply for the following reason:
Some moron blew himself up yesterday, here in Baghdad. My assistant, H, informed me of this in our morning meeting. He said, “The guy was retarded. The police shot him, then he blew himself up and killed two other people.” I winced, and asked if there were any children murdered. He didn’t know. He wasn’t retarded – he was sick with the ideology.
Anyone who knows Islam knows about the nonsense concerning the “72 doe-eyed Houris” that await the Jihadi who dies in the service of Allah. What a bunch of horseshit that is! I refuse to go into it further, if for no other reason that Muslims generally believe that alcohol is Haram in this world, but teach that “heaven” is a place where “rivers run with wine.”
Islam is so contradictory and fucked-up that it pains me to even write these words.
Yet, still there remains the fact that some dude decided, or was coerced into, splattering himself in the presence of others in downtown Baghdad.
I am absolutely sure that T.E. Lawrence was speaking exactly of this manner of dangerous man.
And therein lies the great problem of the Death Cult that is Islam. There is no way to completely kill the deadly ideology without actually killing all of its adherents. And so, we must rid the world of these vermin. It is the same problem that we faced in WWII. Yes, not all Germans were Nazis, but we couldn’t afford to make any distinctions among Germans. We bombed the hell out of Dresden (“civilians” be damned) and continued, willy-nilly, to kill all manner of Germans in our efforts to wipe out the ideology. It worked.
Not all Japanese held the Imperial version of world-wide dominance and superiority of the Japanese “race” of people, but we killed Shintoism and the Japanese High Command Ethos by bombing Hiroshima, then Nagasaki, with no consideration of collateral damage. It worked. Such is what must be done to kill the ideology of Islam. We must rid the world of its adherents, so that the idea dies with them. It is the only way. Otherwise, it is only a matter of time before that “retarded guy” massacres your children – and mine. Where do we start? Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia. Then we move on to South Sudan, Somalia and Chechnya. That ought to put a pretty good dent in things. Then we can move on to mopping up the dregs. What of the Muslims in America? Oh, they’ll quickly come around and change their ways and their beliefs, otherwise, we will pull a Reconquista on their asses and flush ‘em out.
Yes, what I am advocating is massive killing. Not genocide, because Islam is not a race – it is an ideology, just like Nazism and Shintoism, and it must be eliminated. Yes, a whole lot of Muslims who don’t aspire to be that “retarded guy” must die, but so was the way it went in Germany and Japan.
Evil, deathly ideologies must be wiped out, as a bad dream is banished and fades into the light of protective consciousness.
